If you are heading to the 2019 Crick Boat Show this weekend, don’t forget to come and see us and find out more about us.
Now established as one of the ‘must visit’ events over the Whitsun bank holiday weekend, The Crick Boat Show is Britain’s biggest inland waterways festival and takes place annually over the late May Spring Bank Holiday weekend at Crick Marina in Northamptonshire, this year from Saturday 25th to Monday 27th May 2019.
To celebrate its 20th anniversary, this year’s Show will also have a new Trade & Preview Day to precede the usual three-day event. This exclusive day will take place on Friday 24 May, however tickets are only available by booking in advance and will not be available on the gate.
Once again we will be operating the trip boats up the Leicester Arm of the Grand Union Canal throughout the duration of the weekend, for Show visitors to experience a short taste of life on the water. Trip boats run every 10 minutes from 10.10am each day of the show and each trip lasts 30 minutes. These trips are free but we do encourage and welcome small donations in lieu please.
Our trips are always a popular attraction and once again due to popular demand we will again be running an additional boat – to now make four – across all three days of the Show. So our advice again is to book your trip early soon after you arrive at the Show. Head to our marquee at Stand Q50 by the Quayside, where you can also find out more information about us and our two community boats, what we do and offer to community groups and organisations, schools and colleges. And once again our talented facepainting team will be on hand in the marquee to deliver their artistic skills for young and old to enjoy.
Just down from the marquee you can view one of our boats – Guinevere – first hand. We are once again bringing her from Braunston to Crick for the weekend where show visitors can see her in all her glory and also climb aboard to get a feel for how bringing your community group for a weekend or short break trip could be.
Members of our team will be on hand to guide you through the boat, as well as answer any queries and also help with any enquiries. Don’t forget to pick up one of our exclusive Crick Show discount vouchers which are available for bonafide group organisers.
As well as our trip boats, there is so much to see and enjoy at this year’s Crick Boat Show. For further details and tickets, click here https://www.crickboatshow.com/home/
